Mechanical Engineering Technology Major (B.S.)
Engineering technology requires the application of engineering and scientific knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. Graduates may work in a variety of areas including engineering design, manufacturing, field service, testing, and sales and may work in management positions related to engineering, manufacturing, and computer technology.
The UNH Manchester engineering technology program is accredited by:
The Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET
415 North Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21201
The engineering technology program at UNH Manchester offers only junior- and senior-level coursework. Students admitted to this program must have an appropriate associate degree from the New Hampshire Technical Institute or an equivalent institution accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ETAC of ABET) or show academic evidence of ability to successfully complete the requirements of this calculus-based program. After two major courses, non-matriculated students must either be admitted to the program or declare that they are not planning to pursue a degree in engineering technology.
The programs at UNH Manchester are designed to meet the needs of both full- and part-time students with a mix of classes scheduled during the day and in the evening.
All entering Engineering Technology students should have completed mathematics through differential and integral calculus, calculus I. All students must complete MATH 426 Calculus II within the first semester before taking advanced level Engineering Technology coursework. Students must satisfactorily complete CHEM 403 General Chemistry I or offer evidence of equivalent coursework and must complete a minimum of 128 credits and satisfy the University's Discovery Program.
